Great book for sci fi and military lovers. This is like 2 books that become one story as you listen. The whole thing is pretty Star Wars (ish). RC Bray is one of my favorite readers too. Really good story, on to part 2.

Where the Marble Arch stands today in London was once the Tyburn gallows - also known as The Hanging Tree. The walk toward those gallows along Oxford Street and past the Mayfair mansions has a bloody and haunted history as the last trip of the condemned. Some things never change. For both blood and ghosts have returned to those mansions of the super-rich. And it's up to Peter Grant - England's last wizard and the Metropolitan Police's reluctant investigator of all things supernatural - to get to the bottom of the sinister doings.

I was excited by the release of this book and I real enjoyed all the Rivers of London series books! I really wish there were more. The writing and the story telling, the narrators voice. Great job, start with Midnight Riot and you won't be looking for anything new for quite a few books. Enjoy!

James Brabazon is narrating this story of war, violence and political intrigue.He wanted a war. And, for his sins, he got one. James Brabazon was an ambitious young war reporter when he entered the chaos of the Liberian Civil War in 2002. Running with the infamous LURD rebels, he survived numerous deadly ambushes, the privations of dysentery and a dramatic hundred-mile escape from Government troops through dense equatorial jungle. He even had a bounty put on his head.

Bao Ninh, a former North Vietnamese soldier, provides a strikingly honest look at how the Vietnam War forever changed his life, his country, and the people who live there. Originally published against government wishes in Vietnam because of its nonheroic, nonideological tone, The Sorrow of War has won worldwide acclaim and become an international best seller.

This book is in the same league as All Quiet on the Western Front and even Forgotten Soldier. It was a far more coherent version of The things we carried and the prose if this book kept me glued to every word. A real classic.

You know, I guess I really loved the Harry Potter books and was surprised that this was an adult effort at Harry Potter style whodunit. Great story and a great reader! I'm looking for book 2 right now.
